Docker is a tool for packaging and shipping apps. Based on the idea of a shipping container, it provides a standardized way for developers or system administrators to create lightweight images, or collections of images, for each element of an application, and then easily and quickly deploy the image. Since the image is standardized, it can be uniformly deployed on development or production, leading to a much simpler workflow, faster development time for the dev team, and lower management...

To help you understand how VMware Virtual Infrastructure works, lets first provide some background on VMwares virtualization technology. I am going to compare what are the differences between a traditional hardware server and a virtual server? The so called Virtualization layer is represented by ESX Server which installs on a bare metal and separates operating system and applications from hardware and firmware by presenting a virtualized CPU, memory, hard drives and network cards to the...

Virtual machines provide a promising vehicle for controlled sharing of physical resources, allowing us to instantiate a precisely defined virtual resource, configured with desired software configuration and hardware properties, on a set of physical resources. We describe a model of virtual machine provisioning in a Grid environment that allows us to define such virtual resources and efficiently instantiate them on a physical Grid infrastructure. We argue that to properly account for, and... Topics: virtualization, hypervisor, overhead
Vagrant is a powerful tool for creating and managing virtualized development environments. In this session, I'll walk though how to deploy a local Drupal development stack with Vagrant.

Together with an explosive growth of smartphone users the mobile applications offerings are growing rapidly. However, these mobile applications are still intrinsically limited by a relative lack of bandwidth, computing power, and energy compared to their tethered counterparts. To enhance the smartphone user experience the concept of mobile virtualization using cloud computing has been introduced to be a potential technology for mobile services. In this project, we present mobile... Topics: Smartphone, Virtualization, Cloud
Network processing elements in virtual machines, also known as Network Function Virtualization (NFV) often face CPU bottlenecks at the virtualization interface. Even highly optimized paravirtual device interfaces fall short of the throughput requirements of modern devices. Passthrough devices, together with SR-IOV support for multiple device virtual functions (VF) and IOMMU support, mitigate this problem somewhat, by allowing a VM to directly control a device partition bypassing the...

To enable Grid scalability and growth, a usage model has evolved whereby resource providers make resources available not to individual users directly, but rather to larger units, called virtual organizations. In this paper, we describe abstractions that allow resource providers to delegate the usage of remote resources dynamically to virtual organizations in applicationindependent ways, and present and evaluate an implementation of this abstraction using the Xen virtual machine and Linux...

Cloud delivers on demand services through virtualized infrastructure; however there are variety of security challenges that suppress the growth of it. One of the key security issues are protecting the virtual machine from threats posed by other Vm’s so as to ensure a reliable Infrastructure as a service. So we propose a security model for IaaS wherein the VM's dependability is ensured through trusted computing. The hardware root of trust provided as the secure layer beneath the VM ensures...

The cloud radio access network (C-RAN) concept is a strong candidate for next-generation wireless networks due to its flexibility, scalability, increased asset utilization, and energy savings. While resources are centralized in C-RAN architecture, wireless resource virtualization (WRV) can offer substantial capacity increase and efficiency gain. This paper provides solutions for virtualizing C-RANs wireless resources and sharing them between multiple mobile network operators (MNOs). The...

System security and availability are the factors seriously affected due to memory vulnerabilities. Buffer overflow attacks still pose a significant threat to the security and availability of today’s computer systems. Our proposed system is to provide adequate protection against buffer overflow attacks as most of existing solutions terminate the vulnerable program when the buffer overflow occurs, effectively rendering the program unavailable. Our System, SafeStack, can automaticallydiagnose... Topics: Securing Stack Overflow Vulnerabilities, Memory Access Virtualization, Automatic Patches, SafeStack
